I just thought I would ask if others are running into the same problem I seem to be. As I keep adding hard drive capacity and more media (TV and movies ripped from DVD), I am finding the performance of my HTPCs is slowing down. I am running XP MCE on 2 machines, and both of them take longer and longer to navigate menus as my library grows. I know how windows networking works, and how the HTPCs need to keep track of all the files, but it seems to be too noticeably slow at times after adding a group of movies or tv shows. I run all GigE switch and network cards, and once playing, all medai streams fine to either room, its just going through menus to find the show I want to watch that takes a long time. Any info would be appreciated, thanks. I was just reading the 48 TB thread, and it got me wondering how long it would take to go through the menus with that much, its almost 10 times what I have so far.
